Dean Memorial Award, presented by the Boston Public Library; and the Knickerbocker Award for Juvenile Literature, presented by the New York Library Association.

Grade 2-5-It's time to take your 1984 copy of Simon's The Moon off your shelf and replace it with this shiny new edition. This scientific trek to the moon brought to life by NASA photography has been carried into the 21st century through advancements in imaging technology. Although the first edition's black-and-white photographs taken from space and on the Moon were impressive for their time, the digitally remastered color photographs in this update are incredible. Set on black backgrounds and complemented by white text, the images transport readers into space. The text has undergone minimal change, only veering from Simon's exact wording when introducing new pictures or tidbits of information that may not have been available at the time of the first printing. The facts remain true and relevant, and the writing reflects the graphics: beautiful. This is a must-have for astronomy sections.
